Recommended Posts

Christmas is a time for loving and sharing, it is about spending time with the family and enjoying their company, which is why i am happy to let the PlayStationHaX family know that a little Christmas elf popped in to see me today and showed me something wonderful:

Of course with these being confidential Sony files, i cannot and will not link to any files.

 

 

You can read about work into hacking the PS4, you can check these links:

Non Retail, is that like a DEX unit or something? Or the consoles that developers have to make games with?

Must be either devkit or testkit, not really useful unless you are registered to scedevnet due to its requirement of 90day activation. @flatz can do more stuff with his retail than guys who have dev/testkits.

From what I've experienced, most guys who are registered devs are not really interested in hacking consoles or helping scenes but rather selling stuff on auctions.

Its from a test kit, FW 0.8.2. In other words - its pretty much useless as far as breaking a retail PS4 goes.

but i think everything should be useful for the PS4 scene, which it could lead to something else , if we put in consideration serendipity  if you know what i mean ,

I see a grub config file in there. So the PS4 uses grub as the bootloader HAHAHAHAHAHA

 

OtherOS coming soon to a PS4 near you :P

So that's the equivalent of dev_hdd0 right? I'm not exactly sure how useful/intresting is this, things in dev_flash equivalent(s) should be more intresting/useful.

@zecoxao

XD guys that's still from a pre-FW, so don't think that thoes files will be of any help for the Otto 1337 user. :D

also "dev_flash" would be for PS4 the NOR flash it self and for that you need a PCK to decrypt CoreOS files.

if you want the 1:1 equivalent of dev_flash then this would be on the PS4 the "vsh" folder which is also not of use for any normal user cause it is a pre-FW. And a lot of stuff would be changed since 1.0 and higher.

Yes, this particular FW has almost nothing in common with the retail version. I really doubt the retail FW includes MS DOS :P

looks like some of the files in the adm directory were compiled to be run on the test/devkit by the user who's fingerprints are inside them, I see their name is familiar, also looking at the output logs from the ps4devwiki you can easily match a few of the process's to the elfs.
